Member since Mar-10-07 · Last seen Oct-25-16
29 years old, USCF rating ~1750. Personal best around 2100 blitz on ICC and Playchess. Around 1800 on FICS (handle: dumbgai). Inactive in OTB competition since 2011. Inactive in all chess since 2013.

I still follow professional chess because I'm curious to see who wins, but overall my sense is that too many people take this board game way too seriously.

   Oct-17-16 Russian Superfinals (2016) (replies)
dumbgai: IIRC Kasparov also never played in the Russian Superfinals until near the end of his career when he finally entered (and won).
   Oct-13-16 Millionaire Chess (2016) (replies)
dumbgai: <Sergio 1: Not one player ranked in the top ten is competing,is this what they think of this tournament?> To be fair, top 10 players don't often play in open tournaments. No guaranteed prize money + potential to lose a ton of rating points if they have a couple of bad games.
   Oct-11-16 E Paehtz vs Yifan Hou, 2016
dumbgai: Would have been funny if this endgame happened during Ushenina - Hou Women's World Championship (2013) .
   Oct-06-16 Tal Memorial (2016) (replies)
dumbgai: <offramp: If a champion perceives that a player might be a future challenger it would not be logical to choose him or her as a second.> If only Kasparov had heard this advice when recruiting Kramnik to his team for the Anand match!
   Oct-05-16 Nakamura vs B Bok, 2016 (replies)
dumbgai: Naka got totally outplayed by Bok, straight up. Masterful play by black.
   Oct-03-16 Bisguier vs Miles, 1973 (replies)
dumbgai: The finish would be 32...f5 (to prevent Rg4) 33. exf6 Rd7 (Qd7 and Qc7 don't change anything) 34. Rg4+ Kh8 35. Rg7 and Qxh7# can't be stopped.
   Sep-16-16 Carlsen - Karjakin World Championship (2016) (replies)
dumbgai: <Sokrates> Well, there are some on this site who harshly criticized me for saying Kasparov would have easily beaten Ponomariov.
   Sep-15-16 Stan Vaughan (replies)
dumbgai: Stan Vaughan (Trump supporter?) attempted to ask Donald Trump a series of questions on Twitter, but sent them to a parody account instead (and with bad grammar, to boot): He also seems to be a firm supporter of the Confederate flag, even though
   Sep-14-16 A Kovalyov vs D Howell, 2016 (replies)
dumbgai: There's no way that black is anywhere close to losing after 34...Kd5.
   Sep-14-16 Chess Olympiad (Women) (2016) (replies)
dumbgai: Tan Zhongyi and Guo Qi also won individual gold medals for board 4 and reserve, respectively. When 4 out of your 5 players win individual gold or silver, it's no surprise that the team would win overall. Still, it wasn't easy, with many close matches, tough games and narrow escapes.
